I KNOW YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT.WAS AN ALARM INSTALLED OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ACCESSORY? CHECK WITH DODGE TO FIND OUT ABOUT A RECALL.IF SOMETHING WAS INSTALLED, TAKE IT BACK THERE TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT IF NOT HAVE A AUTO TECHNICIAN CHECK IT FOR YOU.

SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

SOURCE: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing

Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.
Regards,

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Why is fuse E hot on ground side w/key in on position. w/fuse removed.


Fuse E is 15 amps, not 50 and does not have a "ground side". The fuel pump relay receives power through 20A fuse O. The fuse links are "hot all the time" because they are connected directly to the positive post of the battery.

Fuse for dash board lights and tail lites keeps blowing


You may have a damaged wire leading to one of the lights that keeps blowing.
Not fun, but you have to chase down the wiring to everything that keeps blowing out.

Blown ignition fuse


Obviously a short, if there has been an accident on the car, trace the wires and see if they have been crushed from it and not repaired properly. Has the wiring been kicked under the dash and is now been knocked by the brake pedal or steering column? Lastly I would get to a mechanic and use a diagnostic on it to determine if it is the ignition module. hope this helps, good luck.

My dash light fuse keeps blowing on my 1998 toyota lite ace noah


This is most likely a short. You can test it by using an ohm meter in your fuse box by testing the terminals for where the fuse goes. If it is a short, you will then have to trace the wires in the dash to find out where the bare or broken wire may be.
